MAC Lavish Rose Lip Gloss Set
MAC Lavish Rose Lip Gloss Set

A Mix of Cool-Toned Glosses for the Holidays

MAC Lavish Rose Lip Gloss Set ($32.50) includes four shades: Demure (warm pink with blue pearl), Going Casual (no description), Colour Saturation (no description), and Boys Go Crazy (deep amethyst).

Each Dazzleglass contains 0.09 oz., while each Dazzleglass Creme/Cremesheen Glass contains 0.07 oz. Of all MAC’s holiday products, their lipgloss sets are one of the best in terms of value. The Dazzleglasses in the kits are larger (in quantity) than the full-sized versions. In this set, there is $29.25 worth of Dazzleglass, $34.13 worth of Cremesheen Glass, and $15.17 worth of Dazzleglass Creme, which is a total of $78.55 in lipgloss.

Demure is a pale, cool-toned milky pink with iridescent blue sparkle. It has semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage and some settling into lip lines, though the sparkle distracts from that. It wore for two hours on me. MAC Pagoda is darker. MAC Going Casual is similar but doesn’t have the same kind of shimmer–a little more pigmented. MAC Cultureclash is similar.

Going Casual is pale, blue-based cotton candy pink with very subtle shimmer. It is mostly a cream finish, and it was hard to apply it evenly–it had a tendency to slide over itself and create lines. This shade is a repromote. This shade wore two hours on me. MAC Long Love Love is more opaque, lighter. MAC Snob is lighter and cooler-toned. MAC Angel is warmer.

Colour Saturation is a rich red-berry with a creamy, glossy finish. It is semi-opaque and though some settles into lip lines, it is not noticeable. This is a repromote. This shade lasted three hours on me. MAC Galaxy Rose is softer. MAC Rebel is more berry and darker. Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant is similar, a little darker. MAC Indigo Pink is shimmery. NARS Bougainville is redder.

Boys Go Crazy is a semi-opaque purple-berry with purple, violet, and blue sparkle. It was a bit of a pain to apply evenly, and as soon as I pressed my lips together, it was uneven again. This shade is a repromote. This color lasted four hours on my lips. MAC Spanking Rich is a lot lighter and sheerer. MAC Flight of Fancy is much darker, redder.

All four glosses are vanilla-scented, but the Dazzleglasses have a brush-type applicator, while the Cremesheen Glasses have a doe-foot applicator. Cremesheen is a lighter-weight, non-sticky formula, while Dazzleglasses are thicker and have a tacky texture. Dazzleglasses tend to wear longer on me as compared to Cremesheen Glasses, which is a formula that is lucky to last two hours on me (I normally get three to four with glosses!)

B-
Two of the four had noticeable problems with achieving even color, so they are less versatile (better over another lip product), and two shades were short on wear.

  1. I still have Boys Go Crazy from its original release and since it’s holding up rather well, I don’t think there’s a really good reason for me to buy this set.

  2. Wow, the last one is really bold. But you pull it off! The third shade is my favorite, though.

  3. Yellowlantern

    Color Saturation is such a pretty raspberry color.

  4. Liz

    Sorry that this is kind of off topic. I noticed you are wearing a Nars blush. Will you be continuing with the Nars blush reviews? I really loved them and was excited that you were working your way down the list alphabetically.

    BTW, I don’t really like those MAC glosses very much. Color Saturation looks nice on you though.

    OK was interested, now not so much.
    Well at least it’s saving me some money.

  6. Avatar of Laura Laura

    Love love love colour saturation! Is this a repromote? The name sounds familiar

  7. Surprisingly, this is my favorite of the 3 sets! Not my kind of shades but they just look good!

  8. Miss J

    While this set is my favorite of the three, I think I’m passing. I really only want Colour Saturation.

    For anyone who is interested in Colour Saturation, but doesn’t want the whole set, it is still available on the U.S. MAC site. :)

  9. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    This set may be worth it for that last one alone! I’m wondering what it might look like over a black lipstick.

    The only one I absolutely would not wear is Colour Saturation.

  10. Courtney

    These are actually quite pretty. If I didn’t already have Boys Go Crazy, I might consider it. Though I guess I could give BGC to someone else…but then there would be an empty slot in the box!

  11. Saturated looks very nice! The others, maybe not…

  12. Avatar of Camille Camille

    These aren’t available for purchase anywhere on Nordstrom’s website? Please help, I’m dying.

  13. Avatar of fancie Fancie

    I’m loving going casual and boys go crazy! They’re soo pretty!

  14. Avatar of Sarah Sarah

    Totally wasn’t even considering any of these but I think one might end up being a Happy-Birthday-To-Me…

  15. Kathleen

    Color Saturation is a repromote from Reel Sexy. Unfortunately, I bought this off the MAC website after I was sent an email about their goodbyes because they made it seem like if I didn’t get it then, I never would. Do you know what the volume differences are between the full size and this one?

    Either way, I am excited for this set. I just wish that this wouldn’t be charging to my card the day of most of the f&f sales! I’m sure my credit card company is going to be calling that day to see if my card was stolen by some crazy makeup obsessed person… Lol!

    • Colour Saturation is 0.07 oz. here vs. 0.09 oz. full-sized! :)

      • Kathleen

        Thanks for replying! I won’t feel bad about gifting my unused gloss to a friend then, instead of breaking up this set when I get it.

        P.S. I haven’t been replying to your replies of the questions I’ve asked, but I have been reading and enjoying them! Just so you know your efforts aren’t in vain.

  16. Lilinah

    All i really want in this set is Boys Go Crazy. I tested it the other day and i am in love.

    Going Casual i know i will never wear.
    Color Saturation is way too red for me.
    Demure i could probably find ways to use, but i wouldn’t buy it on its own.

    So much as i love BGC, i guess i’m going to have to skip this set. Sigh.

  17. I love these! I already bought this set :D
    I can’t wait to get them!

  18. Avatar of Jade Jade

    I really like this set! Especially the last two, they look stunning, I bet they’d be amazing as layering glosses.

  19. Chantal

    Hi Christine,

    Ok, stupid question: If there is one dazzleglass of 0.09 oz, one dazzleglass creme of 0.07 oz, and two cremesheen glasses of 0.07 oz each, how does that total up to 0.40 oz of product (instead of 0.30 oz)? I will probably feel dumb for asking, but now I’m curious! :)

  20. Jill

    I REALLY love this set! Every color is a hit for me.

  21. Anna

    your eyeshadow looks lovely! what are you wearing?

    Amazingly I’ve never tried the Dazzleglass formula. Would you describe the Dazzleglasses as having a similar texture to normal lipglass? If it feels anything like the Sheen Supreme formula I want to steer clear!

    • Not quite as thick as regular Lipglass :)

      What is about Sheen Supreme that you dislike? I think if you don’t like that, then you might not like this, but I’d have to know the why!

      • Avatar of Jade Jade

        It was similar to your comments in your review for the Supreme Sheens, they went “tacky” in a bad way and just felt yuck! I like both Cremesheen Glass and regular lipglass though. Thanks for your reply too :D

  23. Avatar of Jade Jade

    Hey Christine, I’m on Google Chrome and I can’t see The Glossover on the main page, and the last paragraph is missing. Everything is normal if I click to see the whole post though. Is there a particular place I can comment for technical problems or is here good?

  24. VickyM

    Great for me not impressed by any of this :) .

  25. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    I’m not a huge gloss person, but I admit I really love this set! The uneven wear would probably be more of an issue, but I prefer wearing over a pencil or primer as it is. I’ll have to sit on it few for a few days and decide whether I’d really get my use out of it.

  26. Avatar of Melissa divinem (Melissa)

    This is the only thing I bought from the Guilty Pleasures. The last two are the winners for me, and the first two I will use over pink lipsticks. Thanks for the swatches, Christine.

  27. Megn

    These are so pretty. I wish I could afford them!

  28. Ashley

    Christine, how do you think Boys Go Crazy would be if layered over a lipstick? Better or worse than alone?

  29. Erica

    Is the box that these are packaged in cardboard? Is it something that could be reused, or is it kind of flimsy? It’s adorable and I’d love to be able to use it for storage or display it somehow.

  30. Marie

    Christine, would Boys Go Crazy and/or Going Casual go good with Snob lipstick?

  31. L

    I’m thinking Boys go Crazy would look great on top of Pandora from Nyx. I love purples, which is why I had to pick this up! I’ve never tried any glosses from Mac before either, so it seemed like a good choice.
